Installing JPEG support on Debian

If you have made the mistake I did of doing a fairly minimal install on Debian, you might have noticed it is missing a few fairly basic features – such as JPEG support! Luckily it’s fairly easy to install it.

wget ftp://ftp.uu.net/graphics/jpeg/jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz
tar -zxvf jpegsrc.v6b.tar.gz
cd jpeg-6b
./configure --enable-shared
make
make install
